Unsure about what type of career you would like to pursue, or would be good at? Take a career test to find out. They are simple and you can usually take them right on campus. Just keep in mind, career test are just a stepping stone. Once you narrow down your career choices, you should continue to do research about those careers.
I took the Strong Interest Inventory, and it really gave me a lot of useful ideas. Instead of asking you a bunch of questions and predicting what areas you might be suited for, they also give the test to people who are established in their careers, and then they show how well you match with hundreds of careers. It definitely opened up a lot of possibilities.
